Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] strongman now holds a “doctorate” [PhD] in Uganda defiance politics.
The “highest achievement in Ugandan politics” was conferred onto the opposition leader on Thursday in Kiboga town by FDC supporters.
The award came after Besigye confused police and stormed Kiboga hospital without being noticed.
According to FDC officials, Dr. Kizza Besigye rushed a man involved in a nasty accident to Kiboga hospital.
The accident happened in Kiboga town when two boda bodas collided.
Dr. Besigye surrendered his car to rush the injured to the nearest hospital.
The hospital was found manned by police as always but Kizza Besigye had no time to negotiate with them.
He entered the hospital and witnessed how the injured was given the first aid.
Police was seen perplexed but the DPC later gathered some courage and greeted Dr. Besigye with a firm handshake.
Health workers, patients and care takers immediately gathered and surrounded Dr. Besigye and demanded that he greets them as police helplessly looked on.
Besigye addressed his supporters right at the entrance of Kiboga hospital.
Police men looked on in astonishment.
Right from last year’s nominations at Namboole stadium, Besigye said his campaign was about defiance and non-compliance.
This campaign has earned him several warnings from the electoral commission and government.
EC boss Badru Kiggundu threatened to even allow the military counter Besigye’s defiance messages.
Prime Minister Dr Ruhakana Rugunda too in a statement warned that Besigye’s messages could result in election violence.
Besigye has since challenged them to take him to court insisting he is not breaking the law.
Speaking at Ssaza grounds in Kiboga town yesterday, Besigye said state agencies like police were being used to break the law.
The town was manned by heavily armed anti-riot police.
“Police is being used in a partisan way,” he pointed out, adding that no one has a right to block him.
Addressing a gathering at Lwamata, Kiboga district, Besigye told voters that all Ugandans should be accorded equal opportunities and shared prosperity.
He said once voted into power, his government will ensure power belongs to the people.
Besigye is today campaigning in Hoima town.
Police has already deployed at health centres and schools in the district.
